One of the most common types of business disputes involves contracted services, employer/employee relations, salary and benefits, or other related issues. Seeking clarification of legal terms contained in a contract and understanding state and federal laws that govern such matters is often crucial toward obtaining a positive outcome.
When one party fails to meet their contractual obligations, there are several options for recovering damages, depending on the specific circumstances. These may include enforcing the terms of the contract, canceling the contract and suing for damages, or suing for monetary damages as specified in the contract. Calculating damages can be complicated, particularly when the nonperformance of one party initiates a chain reaction effect; this is especially common in the construction industry, where numerous vendors and suppliers are often involved.
One of the best ways to prevent contract disputes, however, is to draft strong contracts up front. From structuring a business deal to addressing issues included in residential or commercial real estate endeavors, the Law Office of Paul M. Marriett is committed to providing our clients a great service that helps them achieve their immediate and long-term business goals.
